Meet the Rainbow family’s medium-sized Rainbow 8/6.
Hobbii Rainbow is one of our own series of cotton yarn, both durable and soft, in a really high quality, which has been a big favorite for a long time.
With a yardage of 105m / 50g, Rainbow 8/6 is an especially applicable thickness, just between 8/4 and 8/8 in the same series. Neither too thin and fine, nor too chunky and rustic, but just right.
Cotton fibres are good for withdrawing excess heat from the body and Rainbow 8/6 is thus very suitable for clothing. It would be great in a lovely summer top, a blouse or a crocheted summer jacket. There are lots of possibilities. The Rainbow series is found in a plethora of nuances, so it should be possible to find the right nuance for your creative projects.
Rainbow 8/6 is also good for e.g. crocheted teddy bears or amigurumi. By the way, did you know that for most crochet projects, e.g. teddy bears etc, you can use the same pattern in all Rainbow’s sizes? You adjust the size of the crochet hook to the thickness of the yarn you are using, and the only difference is the size of the finished project. Lace, 8/4, 8/6, 8/8 = mini, small, larger, largest. Ready, set, go!
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

might not feel amazing at first but once you work with it, it's soft not in a fluffy way but in a smooth way. I made myself a sunflower tote out of it, it's strong, it's pretty, I love it! definitely get this yarn if you're making something like a bag :)) colours come exactly how they're displayed on the website, tiny bit of staining in the package I ordered but I assume that's due to some water damage in delivery (a previous package from them however arrived perfectly, probably the courier's fault for the damage no worries)
When i first became a Hobbiist I didn't really know the differences between the cottons and the sizes and so I ended up buying a bunch of them for a project I'm working on. The 8/6 Rainbow cotton has been so useful for my scrubbies as it isn't too fat (like the 8/8) for the hook with the tulle I work along it. It also has an impressive drape which I find rare in the cotton yarns I have used. Would and will buy again!
I was feeling wary at first about ordering off here, but I'm so glad i did, it was a great experience, my order got here so much faster then i thought it would, i ordered it on the 14th (my time) and it got today on the 20th (I'm in the US). The yarn feels soft, ive only just started a project with it but so far it seems like its good quality, ill definitely be ordering off here again.
Lovely yarn. Used it to make a bunch of doilies/place mats/coasters since cotton is good if it might get wet. Colors are great (so many to choose from!) and works up well. It's also machine washable which is a must for me. I don't have time to hand wash all my projects with special soap or with cool water, it all gets chucked into the washing machine for me. It did great!
This yarn is lovely! All of the cotton yarn I’ve worked with before was very rough and stiff but this one from Hobbii is beautifully soft and plush and so easy to work with, and at a great price too! I ordered it in 3 different colors and they’re all so vibrant. I’m going to make a baby blanket out of it for my nephew who will be here in the next few months.
